Adelaide: My opinion of adoption fairs

Adelaide

I'm looking for a new home.  My human parents split up, and so me and Mercedes (now called Princess) need to find a new home. Mercedes and I aren't related, but we were both adopted out by the same family when we were kittens. We're both real sweet, and were raised in a home with children and another cat.

My original post about me said:

I'm the sweet, quiet one.  I love people, and start to purr when you enter the room.  I love hiding under cardboard boxes and chasing pens. When people come back after being away for any amount of time I become a purr-box and demand to be petted and played with. I am also fascinated by mirrors and computer screens. I'm usually very quiet, but I do have a gentle mew when I have something to say.

The shelter had this to say about me:

Hi! I'm Adelaide and I am an active and fun kitten, looking for that perfect family to go home with.  I enjoy meeting new people, and have lots of cuddles to share.  I'm also spunky and playful, especially when I see little toy mice!  If you're looking for a sweet and entertaining young lady, then look no further. Ask to meet me today!

Aiden

Aiden

I was adopted by a family when I was a kitten, and returned a couple years later. It's an awful story, and I'm trying to move one, and I'm looking for another home, and someone to love me.

I've been a bit traumatized by having to leave my home and people, and so need a quiet foster home and people to understand what I've been through and be patient with me.

This is my original posting:

Me and my siblings were brought to the shelter when we were tiny babies, and we were all given names that started with the letter A. The Fat Cat people saw us and thought we were adorable, and took us in hopes of finding us our forever homes.

I don't like to brag, but I'm the good looking one.    I have a beautiful gray mask that covers my white face, and a little gray spot on my pink nose that just won't rub off.  I'm very gentle and somewhat cautious at first, but once I'm comfortable, I become very outgoing. I let my sister try things first, and then dive in right after her when it looks like fun. I love to chase my sister around the house, and I like all kinds of toys. I'm very friendly, and will sit in your lap and purr if you give me the chance.  When I'm sleepy, I lay on my side and stretch out twice my normal length so you can pet me. I'm a pretty laid back little guy and would make a great companion.

Pick me!

Charlotte

Charlotte

My brothers and sisters and me were recently rescued from a shelter; we had colds and were going to be put to sleep.  But the Fat Cat people saw our pathetic photos and took us and gave us some medicine and now we're fine.  We are all very sweet and start purring the moment we're petted.

I'm the shy, quiet one.  I like to play by myself -- I'm ferocious with mice that rattle  -- and prefer to sit back and watch my brothers and sisters get into trouble.  When they do (and they always are up to something) and my foster mom finds out, she tells me what a good girl I am (no trouble at all!), and then gives me lots of pets.  Needless to say my siblings think I'm a "brown nose" but I don't have any brown on me, just black and orange!  I would do well in a quiet home, where my human could adore me.

Pick me!

I need a therapist.  I have a problem: I have an insatiable desire to suckle on the side of the faces of my siblings.  I admit it's weird, and I think it's due to an abandonment issue -- I miss my mom.  Fortunately my siblings tolerate their faces getting soggy; no one tells me no.  But my foster human says I need an intervention.  It's a big word, and I don't like the sound of it.  Other than that slight quirk, I'm a super kitten.  I LOVE people, and follow my foster mom around, and am very talkative. And my foster mom is certain I'm gonna outgrow my, er, issue.

Pick me!

Me and Cooper are like identical twins.  It's really hard to tell us apart, but he's got a white strip on one of his legs and I don't.  So sometimes when Cooper does something naughty, my foster mom thinks I did it!  And of course Cooper isn't one to own up.  But it's OK.  I love my siblings, and I love the other foster kittens.  I'm easygoing and sweet.  And I'm big.  I'm gonna be a big girl.  So if maybe you're looking to adopt two kittens that can double as bookends, consider me and Cooper.

Eli: Being weighed at the shelter

Eli

We were surrendered to a local shelter when we were about 6 weeks old.  We weren't very happy to be in the shelter -- we were scared and frightened and missed our mom --  and we hissed and spat at the shelter staff.  They decided we weren't "adoption candidates" and placed us on a "special needs list" -- in other words, if a rescue group didn't take us, we were goners.  Fortunately the Fat Cat people saw our photos and knew we'd settle down once we were out of the shelter and got lots of love and attention.

We're now in a great foster home, and will soon be available for adoption, so stay tuned. We're real sweet!

Imogene

Imogene

My sisters and me were rescued from a local shelter when we were just 3 weeks old.  We're a funny looking group: super thin and long-legged, kinda like feline greyhounds.  Our foster mom kept trying to fatten us up by feeding us and feeding us and giving us worm medicine (thinking maybe we had worms and that's why we didn't gain weight).  She just didn't understand that we're naturally lean kittens.  I think she wishes she was thin like us. Not a chance.

I'm the beautiful tortoiseshell of the group.  I really like people, and when my foster mom comes to see Irene and me, I have this real neat thing I do to get her attention: I get behind her and tap tap tap her back with my paw.  She always turns around (works every time!) and looks surprised to find me there and then she picks me up and gives me a kiss.  My other neat attention-getting ploy is jumping on the window ledge so that I'm about at eye level -- this way she can't miss me.

I'm especially close to my sister Irene.  It would be great if we could go to a home together. She looks just like a lioness.

Pick me!

Lincoln

Lincoln

Meow! My name is Lincoln! My brothers and sister and me and my mom were taken to a shelter when we kids were just 2 weeks old. The Fat Cat people saw our photos and rescued us and found us a loving foster home.

I'm the explorer of the group (there's one in every litter).  I love playing with my humans and cuddling with them.  My favorite toys are mouse toys, krinkly balls, and wand toys -- anything that moves or makes a sound, and I'm on it!  I would love to go to a home that has lots of toys and activities for me to keep me busy.  I grew up in a busy foster home with my siblings and my foster mom’s three resident cats and several humans.  The Fat Cat people have been very impressed with my foster family, because all of the kittens they foster turn out to be amazingly sweet and mellow.

It would be great if you could adopt me with one of my siblings.  I hope to meet you soon!

Louie

Louie

Meow! My name is Louie! My brothers and sister and me and my mom were taken to a shelter when we kids were just 2 weeks old. The Fat Cat people saw our photos and rescued us and found us a loving foster home.

Although Lincoln is the explorer of the group, I'm his right-hand cat, and assist him in exploring the house.  I let him do all the risky stuff of checking out a new situation, and once he gives the all-clear I come join him. All that exploring is exhausting, and one of my favorite things to do is taking long naps on my human's beds.   I grew up in a busy foster home with my three siblings and my foster mom’s three resident cats and several humans.  The Fat Cat people have been very impressed with my foster family, because all of the kittens they foster turn out to be amazingly sweet and mellow.

I would love to go to a home with lots of places to explore and toys to play with.  And it would be great if you could adopt me with Lincoln so we could explore together.  I hope to meet you soon!

Luna: That's a good one!

Luna

Meow! My name is Luna! My brothers and me and my mom were taken to a shelter when we kids were just 2 weeks old. The Fat Cat people saw our photos and rescued us and found us a loving foster home.

I’m a sweet, gentle kitten who loves to be around my humans. I love to just sit in my people’s laps and purr myself to sleep.  I can also get very playful -- my favorite toys to play with are mouse toys, krinkly balls, and stringy toys.  I grew up in a busy foster home with my three brothers and my foster mom’s three resident cats and several humans.  The Fat Cat people have been very impressed with my foster family, because all of the kittens they foster turn out to be amazingly sweet and mellow.

If you're looking for a beautiful, smart, gentle kitten then look no further! I hope to meet you soon!

Patch: Let's play!

Patch

Hey there, I'm Patch! My favorite activity is watch my kitten siblings play while I'm tucked away in your arms. Of course, I love playing too, and I'm very good at it when I decide to take a break from snuggling. Some say I am more introverted, but I have a wild side too, at least until it's time to cuddle with you. Can't wait to snuggle with you too!

Pinky

Pinky

Hi, I'm Pinky! I am a wild little lady. I love to play, wrestle, and tumble. I have a lot of energy, but when I'm sleepy, I like to nap on or near my human friends. My favorite thing to do is play with my mouse toy. No matter how many times I catch it, it keeps moving -- so fun! I can't wait to meet you so we can play together!

Pipsqueak

Pipsqueak

Hi! I'm Pipsqueek! I am the goofy younger brother that is too cute to ever get in trouble. My favorite sport is rugby (minus the ball), but I only like to tackle my furry friends. I also love toys! I am very curious and think that everything is something to play with. I love being held by my humans friends so I can be, for once, bigger than my siblings. I am very extroverted and love to know what's happening. Can't wait to meet you!

Polkadot

Polkadot

Hey, I'm Polkadot! I cannot decide whether my favorite thing to do is to run around, chasing and playing with my human or kitty friends, or to be snuggled up, cuddling with them. I can be a little more shy than some of my siblings, but I'll warm up quickly if you give me some toys to play with. Lastly, I'll give you many kisses if we become close friends, or if you smell tasty. Lick ya later!

Punkin

Punkin

Purr, I'm Punkin!  I like my siblings; they make a nice white backdrop so that I stand out.  I am the sweet one; a little motorboat at heart. The second you start to pet me, I start to purr. My favorite thing to do is to explore, but if there is a toy around, you bet I'll play with it. I love when humans pet me; I'll even let them rub my belly. When my human foster family comes in a room, I love to sniff them and find out where they've been.  I can't wait to explore you too!

Vicky

My siblings and me were picked up as babies from a large apartment complex in Sunnyvale.  Our mom had given birth to several litters over the years at the complex, and had developed quite a reputation among the residents.  The Fat Cat people offered to help get the cats fixed and find the kittens homes, and that is how we came to be Fat Cats, er Kittens.

Did you know that one litter of kittens can have multiple fathers?  It's true, and helps explain why all four of us look completely different (and confirms that our mom was a party girl).

I'm the runt of the litter. I'm the smallest and the most delicate.  All of my siblings have been adopted except ME!  I find that quite astonishing, since I'm the most beautiful, and have the most amazing whiskers you've ever seen.  I love to play chase with Daisy, who is my new best friend, since all her siblings were adopted and she's all alone now too.  I'm always the first to investigate a new cat toy.

Pick me!

Willie aka Snaggletooth

Willie aka Snaggletooth

I've got a real sob story: I was adopted by a family and lived with them for 4 years.  Then they moved away, and dumped me outside at their apartment complex to fend for myself.  I wandered around the complex for the next couple years, and nice people fed me and sometimes let me sleep inside.  But I really didn't have a home of my own.  When the Fat Cat people met me, they thought I was real sweet, and took pity on me and took me in.  They cleaned me up and got me healthy -- I'd lost alot of my teeth from malnutrition, but have one tooth left -- my snaggletooth!

So now I'm looking for place to call home. FOREVER.  They tell me I'm a dear boy and don't have any bad habits.  I'm a talker, and love to snuggle up with humans.  I'm happiest when I'm curled up with my family.

Won't you pick me?
